It just so happens that the only place in the United States suitable for cultivating coffee produces one of the best in the world. (Pat yourselves on the back, Americans...you deserve it!) With only 1500 acres devoted to growing Kona, it is one of the scarcest and most sought after coffees available today.
Grown on the volcanic slopes of the big island of Hawaii, it is sorted by hand and strictly graded and regulated by law. Only true Kona beans, grown in the Kona region of Hawaii, can be called such. This coffee features a flavor that is silky smooth and mellow with a distinct sweetness and strong aroma. The true balance in the cup makes it instantly recognizable to coffee connoisseurs the world over. We highly recommend this bean for experienced roasters only, due to the high cost. A Light to City roast will reveal the best of the flavor notes, in our opinion.
